Please don't say rockstar

likeupliftingsmarthelpful

im not a copywriter for a reason lol

Don't use words like rockstar, unicorn, ninja, superhero, or guru. Instead, use words like creative, collaborative, thoughtful, proactive, multi-disciplined, seasoned, patient. You know, words that actually describe the job. Show candidates you respect what they do and have realistic expectations for the role.

productive: passing a post along to PM friends who were laid off. the opposite of productive: lecturing an account person on word choice.

To anyone triggered by the word rockstar: I apologize. To anyone actually interested in a project management position, please DM me for the full job description (it doesnt include the word rockstar, don’t worry). It has been a very stressful 9 months for me (and my agency), with many rounds of layoffs and salary cuts. It makes me sad for the future of this industry that a few people felt the need to lecture me on one word used in an excited post that I am actually able to hire back some of my decimated team. If you aren’t a jerk, and are looking for a PM role, lets talk.
